Home Applied Behavior Analysis Programs (Home ABA Programs) are based and developed on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.
This is due to the fact that Applied Behavior Analysis is the only scientifically proven treatment that has empirical data supporting its effectiveness.
ABA is derived from a science called Behaviorism which focuses on determining what motivates individuals’ behaviors and how they learn.
Programs are provided in the child’s home by Behavior Consultants and other staff.
Home Applied Behavior Analysis Programs also include interventions to help with communication deficits and increase appropriate social skills.
Tools such as discrete trials and task analysis are tailored to the individual when enrolled in the program through Haugland.
Data is taken continuously to ensure that the individual is receiving effective ABA interventions across all tasks, environments and people.
Haugland’s Home Applied Behavior Analysis Program provides a Behavioral Consultant to the individual and their family.
This Behavioral Consultant is not only responsible for the program design, implementation, and evaluation, but also acts as a guide and mentor to parents/guardians, family members, teachers and others who are involved with the individual on a daily basis. This is to ensure that treatment is specialized.
The Behavioral Consultant will provide the staff needed to successfully run a respite program in the home.
The staff that provides respite services that are run through Haugland will work on teaching the skills needed to master the specific goals set in the Individual Service Plan which is written by the individual’s Service Coordinator.
The Home Applied Behavior Analysis Program also offers support in Franklin County through the appropriation of funds for Psychology and Applied Behavior Analysis.
This service focuses on decreasing challenging behaviors and replacing them with appropriate and acceptable behaviors.
